It’s being claimed by Georg Kacher that the Lamborghini SUV – the Lamborghini Urus – will cost £135,000 when it launches in 2016.
Even if the VW board are yet to sign off on the Lamborghini Urus SUV, there’s almost zero chance it won’t make it in to production.
With the 2013 Range Rover heading even more upmarket, the Bentley SUV heading for market in 2015 and endless super-SUVs from car customisers the super luxury SUV market is not one Lamborghini can afford to miss out on.
Now it seems that Lamborghini are going to bring the Urus in at a price that should make it even more likely to provide significant competition for the Bentley SUV and the top end Range Rover, with Georg Kacher reporting in Car Magazine that Lamborghini intend making the Urus the cheapest car in their range at around £135,00.
That looks set to be only around £10k more than the range-topping versions of the new Range Rover and probably at least £15k less than the Bentley SUV.
Lamborghini intend capping sales at around 3,000 units of the Urus a year, but even at that level the Urus will be the biggest selling Lamborghini and there’s likely to be stiff competition to snap up the Urus in China.
With a likely twin-turbo V8 with around 600bhp under the bonnet the Urus should offer proper supercar performance and more than decent off-road abilities, unlike Lamborghini’s last SUV which, although it did the off-road bit with aplomb, wasn’t exactly exciting to drive.
And the Urus will certainly offer a viable alternative to both the Bentley SUV and 2013 Range Rover.
